The Distinguished Faculty Award honors veteran full-time faculty who have given outstanding service to BYU-Idaho. Nominations are solicited at large from fellow faculty members and reviewed by the Best Practices Committee and approved by President's Council. The award is typically presented to 2-3 individuals at the All Employee Banquet in the fall.
Please consider nominating those instructors who have shown a consistent effort to improve their teaching and learning, who are innovators in the classroom and who demonstrate campus citizenship. This should be someone with at least 10 years or more of service and who is continually growing in the work they do.
The deadline for this year's nominations is July 3rd. From the pool of nominations, both past and present, the Best Practices Committee will then pick three to five nominees to receive the award. Each nominee will then be approved by the President's Council. If you have nominated someone in the past, you do not need to submit the same nomination again.
